Banana project at CCFM-NOLa

The Crescent City Farmers Market is currently working on a pilot program in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture & Forestry to get Louisiana-grown bananas in the hands of hungry shoppers. They’re still looking for a few growers to give this a try, but expect to find some willing farmers who agree to grow bananas that are more edible than the starchy plantains and bananas that we have around the city. Seriously, we can throw brown sugar and butter on anything and make it edible, but CCFM smartly wants to see peel and eat bananas for the seniors in FMNP season and so have received a grant to inspire growers to add bananas to their crop list.
Great idea from my home markets and my old employer.
